Oil in the intake... Why?

So i did the blue spring mod today and when I pulled the intake hose, there was oil in it. Like dripping out. It was also in the elbow. My Ford Lightning used to suck oil from the crankcase into the intake, then it accumulated in the intercooler. So I know there is oil in the 6.0 intercooler. Question is, why and how is it getting there. Thanks!

The intake tube just previous to the turbo has the tube from the crankcase breather.
Its sucking oil in that way.
